Cachaça de Minas Gerais – João Andante

The liquid gold of Brazil….Cachaça.

If you`re not familiar with cachaça i wrote a post about cachaça and rhum agricole long ago and tried to explain the difference between them since they both are made from sugarcane juice and yet so different.

The cachaça i have here now, João Andante – is a handcrafted [...]

Last week i wrote about the Cedilla – and excellent acai liqueur from the house of Leblon and now it´s time to present their new aged cachaça as well – Maison Leblon Reserva Especial – a special limited aged cachaça that were recently introduced in Brazil.

Leblon Cachaça recently won the best cachaça and [...]

Cedilla – Açai Liqueur from the House of Leblon

Here comes Brazil!

I just got my hands on Leblon`s new açai liqueur…

Açai is a new macerated fruit liqueur made by Maison Leblon and is made from Zambazon açai berries from the Amazon region in Brazil. Straight from the rainforest, exotic and purple – yeah…this really speaks to me.

I “sort of” knew [...]

Usually i always prefer aged products to [...]

A HANDCRAFTED CACHACA – RAINHA DAS GERAIS

In New Orleans i picked up a very interesting brand of cachaca i`ve never tried before – Rainha Das Gerais. This is an artisanal cachaca distilled in alembic copper stills and aged in oak barrels for 5 years.

When i open the bottle the nose that reaches me is sweet with a hint of [...]

BEIJA CACHACA

Beija cachaca is a hand crafted blend of artisanal cachacas from the states of Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais. Many cachacas are today multi-distilled to become a purer product but at the same time the distillations strips away much of the flavour and characteristic earthiness that makes cachaca so lovable. Beija is made only [...]

ABELHA CACHACA

From Bahia it hails – Abelha organic cachaca. I can easily say that this is the best cachaca i`ve had so far, its insanely good – so flavourful and tasty! yet so smooth. I was actually surprised it was so good even though i expected it to be good. Up in Bahia is a [...]

INTERNATIONAL CACHACA DAY
